As for sbrew's comments, I would say that Jerry and co. are well on the way to burnt long before Ithaca. Not that the Dead weren't entirely a pleasure through '81.
I find '68-'73 to be most excellent.
Subject: "One More Saturday Morning" ...!
Yes I know the type who feel a strong affinity for '77 Cornell, which does surely have it's strong parts such as "Morning' Dew" for one. But frankly, I'm not qualified to review that because even though I did actually attend shows both before, after and twice in that year in particular but most importantly, I did not attend that one or any ever on the East Coast, so I have the decency to recuse myself from it and most any other show I wasn't actually present at; there are so few excepts one might figure I could identify them, except to say that they are all in very early times! I mean that 211 in my case, shows have been attended is plenty at least for me to focus on; and I'm far from even covering all of those, much less pretending I've got some authority to waste your time commenting on any of the rest!
Anyway now back to this date at hand: the show being on a Friday night but then after midnight and after having already done "Casey Jones": (Although it isn't important in terms of you'll listening to this but, when I was looking at them through my binoculars during "Casey Jones", I could see superimposed upon them (i.e. in front of the band as if it were on T.v.), the sign the same one or identical to the one in "The movie": "Grateful Dead"; (regardless of this highly strange personal perception) it's presence being extremely unusual in the first place: (indeed only brought during the encore) was above them overhead, i.e. the same way as in "the movie"!
However, when I would look through my binoculars I would see this as I said above, superimposed even though when I took down my binoculars it was normal i.e. not superimposed in front of the band but overhead as one should expect; in fact that is the only reason I took my binoculars down (that is to say, this was in a way rather distracting such that I could hardly enjoy thoroughly this tune, given that in fact which you'll know, namely how frequently it was performed after the early '70's, thus feeling fortunate myself, this being the first one of 5 or was it 6 times) yet this phenomena was itself indeed so rare, and obviously incredibly inexplicable that I needed to bring down the binoculars in order to check reality)!
As compared to this extremely weird mushroom hallucination (and also the only time I ever took some at a show, not to say I on semi-rare (~15% of the time) occasions didn't do something of a similar capcity of all others varieties) that reoccured every time (which again even this notion by itself is in isolation incredibly unusual that is, most at least for me, halucinations are unique to the moment and can't be repeated at will and/or on que, expect this one i.e. when I lifted my binoculars to my eyes)! Thus, when I returned them back up to look through them, very, very, strangely I could see this phenomena interchangably (i.e. only through at will) my binoculars or not without them!
I'm sure glad Ron Elner and these other folks here got the 2nd encore, because it was a roaring version, even better than San Diego 1979/11/24! Up to par with the entire rest of this regardless of that what that other dude who I'm sorry but frankly, simply doesn't, in proper perspective realtively speaking, have a clue nessacary for knowing, at least for this and dare I say if not him then most certainly in others random folks who as I said before do likewise as well, what one is talking about namely, this absolutely amazing concert! Again, as I already said above: One among others, of the best I ever saw, out of the ~211 times I saw Grateful Dead.
Subject: Sick Show
Subject: overrated.... emperor's clothes
Those that think Cornell 77 is the greatest will say the same about this. The rest who think there are just so many other better shows will shake their heads.
Certainly enjoyable, but so many other better shows.
